Under These Rocks and Stones

God Made Me

I'm jaded, and you're beautiful
I'm deluded, and I'm envious of you
You're caring that I'm hurting
But I'm laughing cause I'm lying
And you believe what I say to be true

This is the way God made me

No self-reliance, no social skills
You're confident and you express yourself so well
Your learned degrees upon your wall
I'm jealous, no invitations to the ball

This is the way God made me
This is the way God made me

No self-esteem, you're picture-perfect
You walk about so contented, the trees call out your name
You're clean and I'm so ignorant
I'm basic and I'm jaded and my excuses are so lame

This is the way God made me
This is the way (this is the way) God made me
(I think this is just the way I'm meant to be, yeah)
This is the way God made me
(Well there's no excuse it's just the way God made me)
This is the way (hey, yeah) God made me
It's just the way I am
It's just the way I am
It's just the way I am

Hands

Oh there's a man outside my door tonight
He cries for help, he sings a pleading song
The times are tough for everyone
Got to hold on to what I got, and just kind of cruise along

Well, I do
Want to be helpful
But it's cold and I'm told
You can't be too careful

Out of the mouth of a mother
And into the hands of a brother
And into the heart of a lover
And out of the hands of another
Do do do do do

You can never tell who your neighbor is
Or what he's doing tonight
Or who his friends are
Well, you don't know where he's from
Or where he’s been, or who he knows
You know you can't be too careful
These days

Well, I do
Want to be helpful
Well but it's cold and I'm told
It might just be the devil

Out of the mouth of a mother
And into the hands of a brother (do do do do do)
Into the heart of a lover
And out of the hands of another (do do do do do)

Well, I don't take chances
And I don't take time to see
And I don't take nothing from nobody
No way, not me

Do do oh
Do do do do do do  

Out of the mouth of a mother
And into the hands of a brother (do do do do do)
Into the heart of a lover
And out of the hands of another (do do do do do)
Out of the mouth of a mother oh
And into the hands of a brother (do do do do do)
Into the heart of a lover
And out of the hands of a child

Into the eyes of a child
Into the ears of a child
Into the heart of a child
Do do do do do
Into the heart of a child
Do do do do do
Into the heart of a child

Surrounded

I was there
When you shone as bright as Bethlehem from afar
I was there
When you were young and strong and perverted
And everything that makes a young man a star
Oh, you were a star

I was there
And I swear to God and on my mother's grave
On everything I have or ever will embrace
I was there
And I saw it with my own two eyes

And now it's all around me, it's all around me
I'm surrounded
And now it's all around me, it's all around me
You surround me like a circle

Do do do do do do do

I was there
Come on, tell me I wasn't worth sticking it out for
Well, I was there
And I know I was worth it, cause if I wasn't worth it
That makes me worse off than you are

It's all around me, it's all around me
I'm surrounded
You know it's all around me, it's all around me
You surround me like a circle

But don't you lose sight of me now
Don't you lose sight of me now

Do do do do do do do
Don't lose sight of me now

Cause I was there
When they dropped the bomb
You know I remember the bomb
And I still hear the bomb
And I still fight the bomb
You know I still fear the bomb
You know I still hate the bomb
Sometimes I still get the call

So don't you lose sight of me now
Don't you lose sight of me now

You know you're all around me, you're all around me
(Don't you lose)
I'm surrounded
(Sight of me now)
You know you're all around me, you're all around me
(Don't you lose)
I'm surrounded
(Sight of me now)
You know you're all around me, you're all around me
(Don't you lose)
I'm surrounded
(Sight of me now)
Now it's all around me, you're all around me
You surround me like a circle

I'm surrounded, oh
Ah ah, like a circle around me
La la la la la la la la
All around me now

Disagree

Ooh oh you know it
You know I'd rather disagree

You tell me what you want from me
Well, I'm not saying I'll believe
I could solve your mystery
But I would rather disagree

Ooh you know it, yeah
You know it
I'd rather disagree

You say the truth will set me free
So how come you're coming down on me
You think it's real if you can see
Well, I don't take to that philosophy

Cause you know
I would I would I would I would I yeah
I would I would I would I would I
I would I would I would I would I yeah
I would rather disagree
Yeah I would rather disagree

Do you see yourself inside of me
And do I take away your miseries
Am I just one more catastrophe
Yeah, I always say what I don’t mean

You know
I would I would I would I would I
I would I would I would I would I
I would I would I would I would I
Yeah I would rather disagree
Yeah I would rather disagree

Don't you feed me, I'm full
You know I'd starve before I'd fall
Don't bleed me, don't bleed me

Even if you're right
Even if I'm wrong
Even if you're right
Even if you're wrong

I'd rather disagree
I would rather disagree
I would rather disagree
Oh, I would rather disagree
I would rather disagree
I would rather disagree
I would rather disagree
(Even if you're right)
I would rather disagree
And I would rather disagree
(Even if you're right)
(Even if I'm wrong)
I would rather disagree

Don't Be Good

Do do do do do do do do
Do do do do do do

Well, I don't know when you learn it
But when you learn it you learn it fast
They're the ones who love to learn
And they're not fast they're nice guys
They finish last

They're waiting and wondering
Where did I go wrong

Don't be good, don't be good
Don't be good to me
Don't be good, though you should
That won't work you see

Do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do

Well I don’t know when I learned it
But when I learned it I learned it fast
They're the ones that love to love me
They're not fast they're nice guys
They finish last

They're waiting and wondering
Wondering where did I go wrong

Don't be good, don't be good
Don't you be good to me
Don't be good, though you should
That won't work for me

Ah ah

Waiting and wondering, waiting and wondering
Wondering where did I go wrong
They're waiting and wondering
Waiting and wondering, wondering

They're waiting and wondering
Wondering where did I go, oh

Don't be good, don't be good
Don't be good to me
Don't be good (don’t be good)
Though you should (though you should)
That won't work, you see
Don't be good (waiting and wondering)
Don't be good (waiting and wondering)
Don't you be good to me (wondering where did I go wrong)
Don't be good, though you should
That won't work, you see
So don't be good to me (don't be good, don't be good)
Don't be good to me (don't be good, don't be good to me)

Don't be good to me, good to me, good to me, good to me, good to me
You're so good for me, good for me, good for me

Co-Dependent

When I go swimming
In your intellect
The water's so shallow
And the dialect is so phony
But I eat it up like bologna
I can't get enough

Well, I, I, I, I should end it
But I, I, I, I defend it
Well, I, I, I, I can't comprehend it
Cause I, I, I, I'm your co-dependent

When you go fishing
For a compliment
It's so, so obvious
And I can't help it
So I put up with it
Cause you're my habit
And I just can't quit

Well, I, I, I, I should end it
But I, I, I, I defend it
Well, I, I, I, I keep on pretending
Cause I, I, I, I'm your co-dependent

The world keeps spinning
Lucifer keeps sinning
The joker keeps grinning
But I need a new beginning

Well, I, I, I, I should end it
But I, I, I, I defend it
Well, I, I, I, I don't recommend it
Cause I, I, I, I'm your co-dependent
Well, I, I, I, I should end it
But I, I, I, I defend it
Well, I, I, I, I can't comprehend it

Baby, be my co-dependent

Believer

I carry my microphone with me
Everywhere I go
It makes for a very good deadweight
In case of an emergency
In case I need to break your face
In case I need you to be dead

Who do you think you are
Who do I think you are
I know who you are
And it's hard to believe that God made you and me
With the same hands, with the same hands

Ah, sit
I tell my doggie to sit
But I am not a dog
But you make the animal in me
Want to come out all over you

Who do you think you are
Who do I think you are
I know who you are
And it's hard to believe that God made you and me
With the same hands
With the same hands

Who do you think you are
Who do I think you are
I know

Who do you think you are
Who do I think you are
I know who you are
And it's hard to believe that God made you and me
With the same hands
With the same hands (with the same hands)
With the same hands (with the same hands)
(With the same hands, with the same hands)

And it's hard to believe that I'm still a believer

Green Apples

You're toast and jam
And you are cotton candy
You're double rainbows
Beside a setting
You're wood burning outside
There's a fire glowing
You're sweet as green apples
You must be the one

You bring me
To the heart of a golden man
You bring me
To the natural truth
You take me
To the solid hollow
And keep me sailing
This ocean of youth

That's why you're toast and jam
And you’re cotton candy
You're double rainbows
Beside a setting sun
You're wood burning outside
There's a fire glowing
You're sweet as green apples
You must be the one

So take me to an altar of diamonds
And run with me through sheets of jungle rain
Show me all your manly mystery
And let me heal your beautiful pain

Be my island in crowds of faces
My oasis
Be there

And lead me to the holy water
And introduce me to the place you are from
Wherever you go you know I will follow
So take me there and I will come
I will come

You're toast and jam
And you are cotton candy
You're double rainbows
Beside a setting sun
You're wood burning outside
There's a, a fire glowing
You're my sweet green apples
You must be the one

I'm saying you're toast and jam
And you’re cotton candy
You're double rainbows
Beside a setting sun
You're wood burning outside
And there's a fire glowing
You're sweet as green apples
You must be the one
You're sweet as green apples
You must be the one

Sweet as green apples
You must be the one

Grace

Please don't go
I cannot breathe you in
Your air is too thick for me
And it makes my lungs sting

Please don't go
I cannot walk beside
Think I'll stay behind a mile
Cause I don't need you cramping my style

And do you still have grace
And mercy, mercy
To keep on kissing my face
Even though I am wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong

Please don't go
Without you I am weak
I find myself drinking and sinking and seeking

Please don't go
Sometimes it gets so cold
That I'd rather grab for a blanket instead
Of walking into your comfort zone

Do you still have grace
And mercy, sweet mercy
To keep on kissing my face
Even though I am wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong

Ooh oh oh oh oh

I know I've robbed you
I know I've hurt you so many times
I hope I haven't scarred you

You still have grace
And you still have this mercy
To keep on kissing my face
Even though I am wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong
You still have grace
And mercy, mercy
To keep kissing my face
Even though I am wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong

If you keep kissing my face
Someday I'll no longer do you wrong

Boot

Never been here before
Never opened up this door
But I got a feeling it's just like the others
Never heard him laugh before
Never felt him feel before
But I got a feeling it's just like the others

He's got a big boot
And he's got a big hand
And he's got a big fist
To put me down

Here we go again

Never heard him lie before
Never seen him cry before
But I got a feeling it's like the others
Never heard him dream before
Oh, I never felt it before, oh
But I got a feeling it's just like the others

He's got a big boot
He's got a big hand
He's got a big fist to put me down
He's got a big mouth
And I know he's got some big words
He's got a big knife to cut me down

Is it all
Is it all because of the fall
But it's not my fault

How long, long
How long
How long do I have to long

Never been here before
Never walked through this door
And I got a feeling it won't be like the others

Even though he's got a big boot
And he's got a big hand
And he's got a big fist, he won't put me down
He's got a big mouth
Bet he's got a lot of big words
I bet he's got a big knife but you know
Cut me, cut me down, oh ooh oh
A big fist and he cut me down
Bet he's got a big mouth
Bet he's got some big words
Come on, let's see your big knife
Why don't you try to cut me down

Wayne

I'll be the girl with the long blond hair
And the really pale skin, if you care
I sit in the corner of the room
Cross-legged and quiet, filled with doom

I never ever liked the smell in here
It's cold and wet and reeks of beer
The lights are turned out permanently
But that's okay cause I don't want to see

Wayne, wait for me
Take me up in your hot air balloon and feed me cotton candy
Wayne, pray for me
Cause I'll be there in a couple of years
Until then, wait for me

Who's the strange lady with the big silly hair
And berries on her face, dressed like a pear
Do I really have to hold her hand
And pretend she's my mommy, your wife and man
When I know you're not mommy

It's crowded and I feel lost in here
I'm trying to find a familiar fear
I look everywhere but I just can't see
There's not anything that reminds me of me, oh

Wayne, wait for me
Take me up in your hot air balloon and feed me cotton candy
Wayne, pray for me
Cause I'll be there in a couple of years
Until then, wait for me

You made me fresh as flowers
Under these rocks and stones

Wayne, wait for me
And take me up in your hot air balloon and feed me cotton candy
Wayne, pray for me
Cause I'll be there in a couple of years
Until then wait for me
Take me in your hot air balloon and feed me cotton candy
Wayne, pray for me
Cause I'll be there in a couple of years
Until then, wait for me

Imaginary Friend

It scares me to speak my mind
It might sound self-absorbed
I don't say half of what I think
I wonder what I'm thinking for

I'm smelling dead flowers
And listening to the walls again
I'm drinking from a leaky faucet
And writing with this dried up pen

Wish I still had my imaginary friend

And who needs to listen, well
What do I have to sell
Everyone's just waiting for their own turn
Kind of like show and tell

I'm smelling dead flowers
And listening to the walls again
I'm drinking from a leaky faucet
And writing with this dried up pen

Wish I still had my imaginary friend
Wish I still had my imaginary friend

Someone to listen, someone to laugh
Someone to cry at the right time

I'm smelling dead flowers
And listening to the walls again
I'm drinking from a leaky faucet
And writing with this dried up pen
You know that I'm smelling dead flowers
And listening to the walls
Drinking from a leaky faucet
And writing with this dried up pen

Wish I still had my imaginary friend
Wish I still had my imaginary friend

And I would call him up
But I don't remember his name
